If this is straight salary then you can add 22 percent to each one for benefits. Town pays all retirement and all insurance for the employees. Some may get mileage and some Police get take home vehicle who live over 45 miles away(90 round trip), so figure gas, maintenance, wear and tear mileage, etc. VDOT says town has 26miles of roads so that is 4 trips throughout town before they even get here.

Very interesting! I love research. Just goes to show it takes a lot a people and a lot of money to run a not so small town. Actually, as far as incorporated towns in Virginia are concerned, we are getting up there. For whatever it is worth, a population of 3800 is not consider small in the state of Virginia. Once past 3500, additional State mandated requirement fell into place, requiring more personnel. In fact, we are just 1200 people away from city status, which will require even more people.

As far as top heavy, compared to what? I would suggest for that answer, we look at incorporated town in Virginia with a population similar to ours. Which would be towns that have a population above 3500 but not to exceed 4300. That would give us Blackstone-3626, Clifton Forge-3927, Richlands-4099 and Tazewell-4282 as a comparison.
While I cannot comment on the very comprehensive list presented, I did take a peek at what town managers were commanding in those jurisdictions, many months ago, back when Ms. Goforth was running around town with her petition.

So back to the top heavy thing, if the town managerís salary is any indication, my guess is maybe, but not as much as you would think.

While population is one way to look at it, it is only a base line. Without a economic comparison, medium income level, business, and demographics. Just look at Tappohanic(sp?)while population would be less look at business population. Just population alone is comparing apples to oranges.
Also as a side note city status requires a lot higher population than 5000, look around 50,000.

Also years of experience as well as education level is considered when comparing salaries in comparable job calories. Federal government also considers cost of living for region. All of these area are considerations. CB has total work force of approx 50. Upper management is on high end in my opinion. I believe our county administrator makes not too much more than TM.

We only have 7 police patrolmen? How do we cover the town? Two officers on duty - 3 shifts a day are 6 officers. But that is 5 days a week and what happens when there are vacations? re we adequately staffed here? How do we cover the town? Do we pay a lot of overtime to cover shifts?

This is how it was listed in last year's budget. Keep in mind that in addition to the listed patrolman, you have 1 or 2 captains / sergeants, plus the chief.

This is a list of salaries BY POSITION - not a list of all employees! It was taken directly from a print out from the Treasurer's Office, so give it a rest. I simply wanted to share the information rather than make taunts and innuendos with nothing to back it up.
